Dave McCallum’s bestselling book, The Featherweight 221 and I, extensively covers maintenance and restoration of the Featherweight sewing machine. A lot of information contained in the book can be applied to other vintage sewing machines as well.

The DVD goes beyond the Featherweight 221 to cover the differences between the black and the white machines, the unique features of the Featherweight 222, plus a special section on the Singer Model 301.
